Strategy: A History by Sir Lawrence Freedman.
Jill: “This is an overarching view of how strategy has been applied through the ages. The author takes a look at the historical as well as the theoretical strategy. It’s a comprehensive view - from the Romans to contemporary strategy. I’m a designer and have an organization that’s requiring communication plans and a lot of our work is socially driven. The book discusses being top down vs bottom up strategists. I’m especially excited about getting into the decision stuff, like rational choice.”

Book reviews from strangers on the subway… So neat!
"I literally see these robots skirting around the lab, and it was almost as if I had this huge flashback to Star Wars. If we are ever going to see robots like that, it’s going to start in a lab just like this, right now, right here.”
Google X’s ambitious moonshot projects have included fantastical visions of space elevators and Back to the Future-style hoverboards. But its latest mission might be the stealthy research lab’s most important work yet: creating a detailed picture of a truly healthy human body.
